    Unnnngghhh - that's one of my life's ambitions, to be there when a shuttle goes up. Can't really do it now, so maybe some other manned launch will have to do. I like the first picture. How did it feel when the engines started to burn? I imagine it must be quite exhilarating, even at that distance.

    You don't hear anything for the first while - we were on a bridge, so definitely wouldn't have felt anything in any case. The sound is loud when it arrives though. What's amazing is how bright the exhaust is, even in daylight - even 12 miles away it hurt your eyes to look at it without sunglasses.
